There are quite a few options for hair removal, from waxing to threading and shaving to tweezing. However, laser hair removal provides a more permanent solution to getting rid of unwanted body hair to the root of the problem.
Laser treatment is a medical procedure and precision work that targets each hair follicle individually. It helps remove unwanted hair from the face, leg, chin, back, arm, underarm and, bikini line. However, it is possible to treat excess hair in nearly any area, except the eyelid or around the eye area.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal is based on the principle of “selective photothermolysis.” During laser hair removal, a laser set at a designated wavelength emits a concentrated light absorbed by the pigment (melanin) contained within the hair, leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. Then the energy from the light beam is converted to heat and carries through the hair shaft and into the hair bulb itself, damaging and killing the dermal papilla, which is responsible for feeding the hair bulb and regenerating the hair. This damage stops or slows down future hair growth.
